(To Issue of Midwifes Uh´s Country in the 18th Century)
Abstract: The issue of midwife´s is related with the history of cities and towns very close. The midwife as a profession existed in the Hungary Kingdom long before the 18th century, but in this century, we reflect names of midwives and their acting, connected to the concrete places. The midwife shows herself as one of the important member of the cities and towns structure. We focus on the territory of the Uh country in this research, where we can study the progress of midwife’s profession as well as the application of norms valid in the kingdom. We bring acknowledgement about consecutive increasing of the number of midwife’s in this text, and information about their languages and religions. We present two different midwife’s oaths and a name-list of each, who are bound to a concrete location, in the Uh country in from the year 1784 to 1785.
